eCube evolutions

An early 1990s mimeograph machine, and a sheet of white paper reading "eCube".
This is a legit mimeograph, kids (although used here solely as a prop).

Our monthly (mostly) email newsletter, eCube, is undergoing some transformation.  Much as we’ve loved our typewriters and mimeograph, our photocopiers, our plain text over the years, it’s time to move to something that makes our newsletters a little easier for you to navigate and a bit easier for us to prepare — and that also connects with our website and social media.

As of today, eCube will now be delivered via MailChimp.  If you were already a subscriber, you should have received an email welcoming you to the new service.  If you didn’t receive that email, you can verify your subscription (or subscribe for the first time!) below.

If you’re worried that your eCube may go into your spam folder, add the email to your safe sender list.

If you’re a Gmail user, we do want to warn you in advance that Google often routes MailChimp emails to your Promotions tab.  Don’t forget to check for it there if you don’t see it in your inbox!

eCube is still going to come out monthly — and we expect we’ll do twice-a-month newsletters in April and May as we get closer to the convention.  Our email newsletter is a great way to get a handy monthly reminder of all our upcoming deadlines, articles about what’s going on in WisCon planning, and tips on how to make the most of your Memorial Day weekend.

If you have any questions about our transition to MailChimp, you can email me to chat about it:

eCube: Volume 38, No. 5

A new eCube came out on April 11th. Check it out for information about hotels reservations, confirming preliminary programming assignments, the dessert salon, role-playing gaming, things needed for children to take apart, SFRA, and more. We also need volunteers to run activities at the Gathering and someone to run the Tiptree Bake Sale. You can read the eCube online here.

eCube: Volume 38, No. 2

You can read the latest edition of eCube here. Snapshot of the information in this issue:

–Learn about our 6th floor room deal. If you sleep on the party floor at the Concourse, you can receive a room discount. This process is first come, first served.
 –You can submit programming ideas at
 –WisCon needs a video archivist. We have recorded many GOH speeches and Tiptree ceremonies, but currently nothing is done with these recordings. Help preserve & share WisCon history, if you can!
 –Last year was the first attempt at organized gaming at WisCon. We’re seeking more feedback & volunteers for gaming at WisCon 38.

 For more information on any of these topics, please see the eCube.
